So how does a laser remove hair? Light energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and damages or destroys its ability to grow hair. Since pigment is needed to absorb the energy, the laser is most effective on brown or black hair and ineffective on blonde, grey, or white hair.
We perform a variety of treaments at our Cosmetic Center in Houston, including laser hair removal. While just about any area of the body can be treated, the more popular are the upper lip, bikini, and underarms. Our new Duet laser is fast and more comfortable than our previous devices. Most of our patients are not requiring any anesthetic cream. However, to reduce any discomfort and help you relax, we can apply anesthetic cream an hour before treatment to the targeted areas. The length of each treatment session depends on the size of the areas being treated.
After the treatment, the hair falls out over the next 1 to 2 weeks. Because hair grows in phases, it takes an average of 6 to 8 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, to achieve complete results.
You can also "1-stop shop" – combining laser hair removal with a medical check-up, or other cosmetic treatment, such as one of our relaxing SPA services or BOTOX® Cosmetic in Houston when you visit Suzanne Bruce and Associates.
